Updated: Our Continued Response to COVID-19

PATH Foundation’s fourth round of grants during the COVID-19 crisis contributes to a total of $2.3 million in response funding.

On October 1, we announced $1,501,720 in Community Resilience Grants to 44 local organizations. Community Resilience Grants were a one-time grant cycle created to help ease the financial burden of increased expenses due to the impact of COVID-19. To read the full list of COVID-19 grants to date, please scroll down. 

This marks the fourth round of PATH funding in response to the coronavirus, and it continues to focus on urgent needs of our community and the nonprofits that serve it.

“In the face of the pandemic, our community has proven its resilience,” said Christy Connolly, president and CEO of the PATH Foundation. “However, even as we adapt to the public health crisis, we’re still faced with critical needs and difficulties.”

“We continue conversations with our board and partners to understand how our community has been impacted and how we can help,” she added.

The Community Resilience Grant funds are in addition to the previous $816,500 PATH has granted in response to COVID-19, for a total of $2.3 million in funding to help our community cope with the pandemic as of May 20.
